There will be a second Raffles Hotel that will open in Singapore in 2022. Raffles Sentosa Resort & Spa Singapore will be located just a stone’s throw from Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa.

Accor, in partnership with Royal Group, is working with global design studio Yabu Pushelberg to create an all-villa hotel that will be housed among 100,000 square metres of gardens, accompanied by views of the South China Sea.

Founder George Yabu shares of the design concept during the launch announcement, highlighting that his team wanted to create pockets of light within the greenery to emulate the look of glowing lanterns in the woods, when night falls. This concept has been adapted in the design of the restaurant (above).

The villas on the property will range in size from 260 square metres for a one-bedroom villa, to 450 square metres for a four-bedroom villa.

All villas will have a private pool and terrace area. 

The announcement of this new resort and spa also comes alongside news of upcoming projects around the world, such as Raffles Udaipur and Raffles Bali (which both open in 2020), and Raffles Jaipur (slated to open in 2022).
